You can make your own loudspeakers... if you have access to a good woodshop, have the inclination, time and patience, you can make a pair of extremely good loudspeakers. Troels Gravesen is a biochemist and audio hobbyist - his website publishes some of the best documented DIY designs around.

Curious George: What should I do in life? I have a bachelor's in industrial design, which seemed like a good choice since I love creative thinking. Surprise! Design involves very little creative thinking in practice (or in theory). I have no idea what I should pursue in terms of self-education or graduate programs or work. more inside

The promise of online dining has been partially fulfilled. If you live in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Pensylvania or Illinois, I have a very exciting announcement. Foodler is a big honking list of local restaurants who will deliver food to you (and another list for take-out). Similar things have existed in the past but foodler works really well. Sign up, give them your zip code, choose a place to eat (here in Cambridge MA I can get everything from American to Bangladeshi to Desserts, Italian and Thai) clickey clikey and in half an hour chop stickey! Also has reviews and favorites. Totally awesome if you're lazy. The interface is great, the selection is wonderful, and the restaurants that have signed on really seem to 'get it'. more inside

AOL Search Queries as Narrative AOL released a bunch of search query information recently. Interestingly, the information shows you who searched for what and when. AOL Stalker reveals the thoughts of the person stalked. This is one example, but this is my favorite, user 1890315, who goes from country music to incest to knoxville real estate to bestiality to Elvis..... Wait, no, my favorite is this one. AOL Stalker promises to remove entries that identify a user, as if it matters. more inside

What?? What???? I don't watch the Grammyses because they're incredibly stupid, but that may change seeing as I missed LINKIN' PARK, JAY-Z, and PAUL McCARTNEY SHARING THE STAGE SIMULTANEOUSLY. I had never seen this. WHAT IS GOING ON??

Part two of the idiotic videos feature on monkeyfilter - 8bithuffers-ns.avi. The best combination of amatuerism, inventiveness, being in the midwest, and having a true comic gift. And Ray Parker (composer of the theme from Ghostbusters).

This is the strangest example of internet collaboration. You visit the site. You 'get' it. You submit your own oo. It goes on and on.

Marathon's Story. Huge, aging Mac nerds need only click on this link. Wow. "In addition to these questions is the question - who is communicating this message to us? The first line is typical of Leela "Your last mission was a success, but I have terrible news". The reference to your last mission is presumably the clearing of the Engineering Section of Pfhor to prevent them from detonating a bomb (Shake Before Using...). If you had successfully completed the earlier level "Bob-B-Q" you would have received the following message from Leela..."

Curious George: Nutritional Supplements Hey all. I'm trying to gain a little weight right now. I am as Huey Lewis put it "I'm working out 'most everyday and watching what I eat". Anyway, the obvious need in this situation is to eat 2-3000 more calories/week to gain about a pound a week (of muscle, hopefully). I love cooking but I obviously need to exercise my smoothie skills (smoothie recipes within) to do this. Can anyone recommend a good shake/powder/protein substance? I've had some that taste great and others which taste horrible ands gummy. PLZ HELP! Whole foods staff are useless. more inside

Wheelchair Girl (porn review) The kissing goes on until they are caught by Wheelchair Girl. Crying, she screams that she didn't know they were into such horrible things, and runs off. Ai and Sayaka pursue, only to find the dumb bitch has thrown herself off the roof of the school. The scene fades, and Sayaka as the narrator explains that Wheelchair Girl didn't die, but she was paralyized from the waist down (hence, the wheelchair!)
